Birmingham integrated office design consultancy, KWB Workplace has completed an office fit out for one of the world’s largest employee-owned companies.

KWB Workplace, the consultancy arm of Birmingham commercial property agency KWB, designed and project managed the fit-out of 21,000 sq ft of grade A office space in the Bristol office of management, engineering and development consultancy, Mott MacDonald.

The two-stage project, at 10 Temple Back – one the city’s most prestigious office developments, took into account more than 100 good practice environmental measures.

KWB Workplace has a long-standing partnership with Mott MacDonald having worked on a number of office projects, most notably the office fit-out when Mott MacDonald re-located its Birmingham office into 19,000 sq ft of Grade ‘A’ office space at 35 Newhall Street in 2013.

KWB Workplace director Adrian Southall said the latest move was the most complex yet.

He said: “We worked to the highest standards, as we considered more than 100 good practice measures covering energy and CO2 emissions, waste, water, materials, pollution, wellbeing and transport, in the course of specifying materials and furniture, appointing contractors, and project managing the fit out.

“Templeback is an outstanding waterside headquarters office building in Bristol city centre which has achieved the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ for its construction, so it was important that KWB Workplace and Mott MacDonald worked together to achieve very high environmental standards for the interior of the building.”

Based in the UK, Mott MacDonald is a global engineering, management and development consultancy. It is one of the world’s largest employee-owned companies, employing more than 16,000 staff in 150 countries.
